The mission of CASANYS is to support and develop volunteer advocacy by local CASA Programs throughout New York State on behalf of abused and neglected children. Trained volunteers are appointed by Family Court judges to advocate for the best interest of the children in cases of abuse and neglect. Our volunteers work toward achieving permanency for each child in a safe and permanent home as quickly as possible.
Our vision is a safe and permanent home for every child.
These local programs, operating in more than 30 New York State counties, recruit, train and supervise over 700 volunteers advocating for children in the Family Court and child welfare systems.
Through public awareness activities, program evaluation, training and technical assistance, information and funding support, CASANYS helps local CASA programs thrive.
The need for CASA advocates is more urgent than ever. Please help us help a child by making a donation today.
